Historically I was a member of AUUG now a member of LA
To me both organisations delivered / deliver the same value base.
AUUG introduced me to shared Unix based source,
LA picked up on the concept and delivered exelent series of conferences.
There are a number of LA players who feel the name should change
to better represent the changing LA goals,
I happen to believe LA came into existence because AUUG leadership
failed to move with the rapidly changing times.
I see AUUG as a parent of LA and as such part of our history.
Therefore I support a inclusive relationship to provide a home for AUUG
